Ok, I really have no intention of turning this into a primarily beauty news blog, and I'm working on other content, but my friend Becky sent me a link to this collection this morning and I had to share it. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bx5IkAXB8z7/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link https://www.instagram.com/p/Bx-gz7Hgu0w/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link I've never heard of this woman and don't know anything about the brand,...

A boring af new collection
I've mentioned before how much I hate when brands release the same shit over and over again. It's like they get so comfortable with their best-selling products that they don't try anymore. One of the best examples is Benefit with their brow and cheek products, and Nars with their Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer. Well,... Continue Reading →
Hey Lush, are you ok?
Hey, did you hear about Lush? In a shocking move, Lush Labs has announced that they'll soon be shutting down all of their UK social media accounts. They have 202k Twitter followers, 569k on Instagram and 423k on Facebook. I'm not good at math, but that looks like close to 1.2 million social media followers... Continue Reading →
Makeup and candy
Makeup and candy are two of my favorite things. I really think that my love of Halloween blossomed when I learned that the whole point of the day was free candy, and the love of creepy things came way later. I also love Asian beauty companies, like Etude House. Not only do most brands use... Continue Reading →
Brandon Truaxe died. A few months ago he was the center of attention due to his erratic behavior and his odd posts on the Deciem's social media. This behavior, including his attempt to completely shut down the company, led to minority shareholders Estee Lauder having him removed as CEO in October by order of a... Continue Reading →
I missed a pretty important piece of news yesterday
Morphe is releasing a foundation later this month. In 60 shades. SIXTY. SHADES. OF FOUNDATION. They're calling it Fluidity Foundation and it's supposed to be matte and full coverage with 24-hour transfer and water resistant wear for all skin types. And it's $18. Um. Wut. I don't understand. Am I dreaming? This is like everything... Continue Reading →
News! About beauty things!
I know that I don't talk about news on the daily and that there are plenty of other ways to get your beauty news (like maybe the YouTube channel Beauty News, which I love. Those Aussie ladies are my homegirls), but in the last 24 hours there have been some stories that I found interesting... Continue Reading →
Rimmel vs. cyberbullies
Back in October Rimmel announced that they'd be partnering with The Cybersmile Foundation in a campaign to combat beauty cyberbullying, employing the hashtag #IWILLNOTBEDELETED. Unfortunately, this announcement was overshadowed by one of Rimmel's sister brands, CoverGirl, announcing that they're now certified as cruelty-free. The news has been on my radar for a while but because I'm a... Continue Reading →
Beware! There’s death in everything!
If you're anything like me and mildly obsessed with Asian beauty products, you're likely also always concerned about what's actually in the stuff you're slathering all over your face. Enter Allure to confirm our worst fears: apparently dangerous levels of mercury have been found in skincare products being sold on Amazon and eBay. Lovely. According... Continue Reading →
CoverGirl loves bunny rabbits!
Today Cruelty Free International announced that CoverGirl has become the world's largest certified cruelty-free makeup brand. Cruelty Free International, formerly the 'British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection', has existed for over a century and from its inception has aimed to end experimentation of any kind on animals. They've awarded their Leaping Bunny Certification to... Continue Reading →
Speaking of horror…
What in the holy hell is happening with Deciem's founder? Let me back up: Deciem is the parent company of The Ordinary, the company that's proven that decent skincare doesn't need to cost an arm, a leg and our first born. Their most notable release was their foundation almost two years ago; with two coverage... Continue Reading →
Something I don’t have an opinion on
Affiliate links. It seems like a lot of people have a lot of opinions about this, and I'm really not sure where I fall. As a consumer and a frequent watcher of YouTube/reader of blogs, I think that the people who are lucky enough to have codes and affiliate links and whatever should disclose it... Continue Reading →
Foundation for people who hate foundation?
Recently I've been all about reading PopSugar for makeup and beauty news. Some of it is terrible and PopSugar doesn't have the best writers; they remind me a lot of C.S. Lewis in that they give the reader very little detail and we're left to make the rest up on our own. Using my imagination... Continue Reading →
Ughhhhh Kat Von D
If you haven't been paying attention to Instagram/YouTube/the internet in general, you haven't seen this post from Kat Von D: I don't even know where to begin with this. I am completely in support of her choosing a midwife and doula and having the baby at home. Whether or not to use drugs is completely... Continue Reading →

Sephora announced today that in honor of their 20th anniversary they're having a convention, called Sephoria: House of Beauty. The two-day event will take place in October at their downtown L.A. location, and tickets go on sale in July. According to a statement from the brand, Sephoria will be "highly-immersive two-day beauty event fusing high-touch physical... Continue Reading →
